The Gettysburg Expedition Guide is the ultimate way to explore Gettysburg. This unique hardcover book includes 3 components:
- Battlefield driving tour (audio CD + mobile version)
- Illustrated guidebook (hardcover, 84 pages)
- Multimedia computer CD-ROM (Windows only)
The Battlefield Tour
Narrated by Wayne Motts, one of Gettysburg's most popular licensed battlefield guides, this self-guided tour is the top-selling audio tour in the Gettysburg Visitor Center. The 2.5 hour tour can be explored at your own pace using either the two audio CDs included in the book, or you can download the tour to your smartphone and explore the battlefield with the additional features found in the mobile version of the tour (available for iPhone and Android ). When you purchase the Gettysburg Expedition Guide, you also get access to the virtual tour version of the tour.
The illustrated guidebook complements the audio tour, helping you to visualize the battlefield as it appeared in 1863. Compare the past with the present: the book shows you the locations where many of the most historic images of the battlefield were taken in the days following the battle. The book is also filled with Civil War trivia and information to ensure that even the Civil War history buffs in your family learn something new.
Multimedia CD-ROM (Windows Only)
The computer CD-ROM is an ideal way to prepare for your trip to Gettysburg. Start with the 30-minute animated movie that explains how the two armies came to collide at Gettysburg. Then explore the animated battle maps and movies about Civil War tactics and weaponry. Think you know everything? Take the quiz game and see who is the real history buff
What's the difference between an Expedition Guide and a Field Guide?
The Gettysburg Expedition Guide contains the same audio tour and book pages as the Field Guide. The Expedition Guide is a hard cover book, while the Field Guide is a soft cover book. The Expedition Guide also includes a multimedia computer CD-ROM (Windows Only), which is not included in the Field Guide.
